Left accuses NYC school principal of hate

A Queens fifth grader made headlines last week after he was prohibited from giving a speech on same-sex marriage to an assembly of first through fifth graders at his school. It should come as no surprise that progressives are up in arms over the alleged restriction of free speech this student faced in what many on the left are calling ‘hate.’

Beryl Bailey, principal of P.S. 195 in Queens, New York, decided that 11-year-old Kameron Slade’s speech about marriage equality was not appropriate for the first through fifth grade audience, and the boy was instead allowed to read the speech on Monday at a fifth grade only assembly.

“When did all the disagreements in this country become hate,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Since when if I don't agree with a certain lifestyle is it hate? Or even, even if it's just that I don't want my 10 or 11 year old kid subjected to certain things before I feel they're ready as a parent, or I don't want them subjected to it at all at school, because I want to talk to my children about those things, how is that hate?”

While the Kameron and his mother have accepted the compromise put forth by the school and thanked the Department of Education for their attention to the matter, others are still not satisfied. New York City Council member Dan Dromm is now accusing Bailey of hatemongering.

New York City school’s chancellor, Dennis Walcott, is defending Baily’s decision. “It's something that the principal felt she needed to do more diligence with her parent community because of the topic of the speech itself,” he said.

The question here is not whether or not Kameron had a right to give this speech, but rather if the content of the speech was age appropriate for the audience at hand.

“Now, this kid sounds like an incredibly intelligent, mature fifth grader,” Glenn said. “But does he have the constitutional right to say whatever he wants in class to first graders? The answer is no. No, he doesn't.”

“How is it possible that that is hate,” he continued. “I had a first grader. I don't want them talking about sex. I don't care if it's heterosexual sex. I don't care. How is that hatred?”

The problem is that it is this issue has absolutely nothing to do with hatred, nor could it be considered hatred under any logical circumstance. “This is all part of the progressive effort to shut you up,” Glenn said. “Only one side gets the discussion. Any way they want it, anytime they want it, with anyone they want it with. But if you say that's inappropriate, that's hate.”

“We have to use common sense and be rooted not in the passion of the day but in the truth,” Glenn concluded. “You have to change the words. If you're a progressive, you have to change the meanings, you have to shout people down and shut them up because you can't win on principles or logic.”

“So they try to win by ending all discussion by just claiming hate. But they can't. They can't shut people up anymore because we're not going to sit down. We won't shut up. We won't be shouted down. We're awake now.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
